Tokyo picture quiz

I'm teaching a course that's going to focus on tourism in Japan.  Even though students are mostly from Tokyo, it often seems that many have little idea of the city. The construction site (the new fish markets) will probably be substituted before the class.
Any takers? If the place taken from and the subject are clearly different, both should be mentioned.
P.S. Many thanks to my little sister who kindly let me use some of her photos.


And thanks to this site that converted a PDF to JPG so I could upload it. http://pdf2jpg.net/convert.php

That's a very fine effort though. Some of them are a bit obscure...
